Not long after the start of the second quarter senior running back Trevor Newman ran the ball 6 yards for a touchdown. Pike reacted soon and scored on a fake field goal attempt to make the score 21-15 Fishers. Junior kicker Ben Norton put 3 points on the board with a field goal just before the end of the half to make the score 24-15.

At the start of the second half, junior Bryce Reardon blocked a punt that sophomore Emmanuel Sanders then recovered for the Tigers, running the ball all the way into the end zone for a touchdown making the score 31-15.
